Do you listen to NPR?
I think I do.
I listen to APR Alabama Public Radio. I think they are part of NPR.
I listen to Prararie Home Companion and NPR News and The Bama Bluegrass Show which originartes from the University of Alabama.
My goodness, so many of us are liberals:laugh:
I do like to skip around the radio dial every now and then. Though I do like Rush, I like to get all three sides of a story. In the end, I listen to all the reporting, then I decide.
Ps, I do not have cable, do I do not get Fox news.
Not anymore. I used to listen to it all the time, but Ron got me satellite radio and now I listen to Fox where I can still hear Juan Williams (he was my favorite at NPR).
Juan Williams !!!????!?!?!!?
Bitsy, we can't be friends, anymore.
I really enjoy Bob Edward's interviews. My wife loves NPR, but I prefer a more bombastic style of broadcasting.
Define bombastic for me please . . .
I love car talk. Those guys always made me laugh. mmmmmm maybe I should refind NPR on satellite radio . . . .
You know, a style that keeps you awake......:type:
I love car talk. Very funny.
Bitsy, I sure hope you don't take me seriously.....
S: (adj) bombastic, declamatory, large, orotund, tumid, turgid (ostentatiously lofty in style) "a man given to large talk"; "tumid political prose"
Just think "Limbaugh"....:laugh:
I don't really like most right-wing radio nuts, but I really do enjoy Rush. I like Tony Korhnieser a lot, he's a liberal host over on XM. So it's balanced, I guess. Tony's extremely bombastic in his approach.
Again, hope you didn't take offence.
Me, take you seriously?!! surely you jest! I just wanted to know what bombastic meant in your vocab. I work with 8th graders and have found it safer to ask for definitions BEFORE putting my two cents in. BECAUSE sometimes they don't mean what I think they mean. Always embarrassing to give a heartfelt and well meant nag (mmmmm I mean lecture) when no one has a clue what I'm talking about.
The first post I typed about bombastic was -- you mean the rude people who try to make their point at the same moment in time when all the other people are trying to make their point? I should have gone ahead and typed it because you meant what I thought you meant. :thumbs:
Generally, I agree with you Curtis, but on this brother . . . I like Juan Williams and you like Rush Limbaugh, so on this (this one small thing), surely we can agree to disagree :smilewinkgrin:
I try not to listen to NPR on purpose.:BangHead:
80% -- maybe more like 90% -- of my radio time is NPR. PHC, Car Talk, Whad'ya Know, Only A Game, Fresh Air, .... I recognize the commentary is liberal and the news is tilted left, but it does provide an intellectual challenge to my beliefs. Much of the other 10-20% is local Christian radio talk, but it tends to sound trite very quickly. The last tiny percent is country radio. Hmmm ... I'm starting to feel something close to convicted! :tongue3:
I watched them tape that --Wait wait--I have an answer--or something like that-It was quite humorous, but I don't listen to NPR.
I never listen to the radio in the car. I always play my gospel tapes or listen to a sermon.
Only listen to NPR on long trips in the car... but most of the time, while I'm out I can find a station playing it wherever I am.
LOL, I voted "no".
NPR? Get serious, I never listened to "Airhead America", either. I don't listen to talk radio in any event, but if I did, it wouldn't from THAT side of the political spectrum.
It's my favorite radio station. My favorite show is "New Sounds", but I "Stickley's Mix" is interesting, too.
I find NPR more eclectic than leftist, although they have a decided dearth of bombast. I don't have much tolerance for bombast and loud driving bass.
My "no" was about 5% political, and 95% life style. We have some very interesting programs on other stations. I usually listen to WDLM or WHO out of Des Moines.
You know what I don't like about NPR? The reporting, it's almost "Airhead America" quality.
NPR reporter question, to an attorney:
Rehm: "What’s if Johnson’s family were to say ‘Tim Johnson can no longer serve’? Do they have the right to do that?"
Ornstein: "Uh, basically, no. I suppose you can imagine a set of circumstances under which he was in such awful condition, clearly deteriorating, moving towards death, where there might be a broader consensus in the Senate and in the society, but otherwise, no. It’s within his control."
MSM bias? WHAT bias?
